THE EU/US FREE TRADE AGREEMENT PANEL DISCUSSION
Date(s) - 28/10/2013
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
London Action Resource Center (LARC)
The current direction of this yet to be finalized US/EU FTA is unhindered by public interest, or public outcry. The media is notably and hauntingly silent on this and all other International Trade Agreements.
Upon completion, the US EU FTA will invoke laws that will strip the EU states of their ability to hold corporations accountable to the laws of their nation. In stark contrast however multinational corporations will have the right to sue national governments or the EU if any of ‘all future profit-making’ is threatened by the government’s actions such as legislating to protect the environment or workers rights.
This talk is an opportunity to grasp the big picture, so we can make moves to change the current direction.
NB: The picture is pretty darn big!
